Puts the other similar business on the island to shame . The food is always excellent . Lovely roast dinners every Sunday , better than a lot of roasts I’ve had in the UK. Food quality is great . Nice staff and shows premier league.... Perfect when you’ve had enough of Thai food .More

A great little restaurant bar just off the main Kata strip. Had been in a few nights playing pool (free) and having a few beers. Very friendly welcome by the host and his Thai family. Couldn't resist returning to sample the much talked about Sunday...lunch, we both had the beef option, I was very tempted to opt for the lamb shank. I can honestly say it was probably the best Sunday dinner I have ever eaten, sorry Mum. Only one regret and that is we wont be in Kata next Sunday to have a re visit.More

This little gem is tucked back at the end of an unassuming soi. Arrived today for Sunday lunch to find the place busy with people eating and enjoying themselves (great sign in current tough times). We had the lamb & beef roast dinners and was...bowled over with both the quality & portion sizes, the chef has perfected the roasts. 2 desserts were included in the price (450thb) a chocolate lava cake and icecream & homemade apple crumble, both were excellent quality too. Living in South Phuket for 7 months, and this is by far the best roast we have found. Going back for the steak next time. If you're looking for bistro/gastro quality food and pub prices, its here.More

John the owner, was extremely helpful and kind. We had the roast dinner on the Sunday and asked if he could accommodate me for my birthday the following Friday. He was very kind and did a beautiful roast because I let him know the day...before! Thank you for your amazing service, delicious food and great atmosphere at The Tavern.More

Lovely local tavern offering supreme food. Whole family (kids included) kept wanting to go back, which we did regularly during our 2 weeks in Phuket. Family run business which shows in their attention to service. OMG the pork ribs dish is divine and the Roast...and the Yorkshire pudding was bliss. Going to miss John and his family, such genuine team making our time in Phuket that much more enjoyable.More

I visited fairly late in the evening when the resto I was planning on visiting turned out to be closed - so a little walk around Kata later and I was in the Tavern having what turned out to be a very delicious panang curry....Service was very good - the staff were very friendly and I certainly felt welcome. Price very competitive also. 5*s.More

Read all the excellent reviews on the Sunday Roast dinner with a choice of beef, lamb or chicken. The Yorkshire pudding was a fail and disappointment. Very dried out with a hard texture and could not eat it. Meat and vegetable portions were good with...a nice gravy. The service was okay. The price was more than average.More

Thanks for the review. I now would like to take this opportunity to respond to your nonsense. Yorkshire pudding is flower, eggs and milk. Cooked in an oven which science says would be dry and crispy. I also noticed you put a bad review on...More

I think it is certainly best to book in advance. The tavern gets very busy. If you look on the Trip Advisor site the telephone number for the bar is there.
